Ode To The Flu

My apologies if this post is late
I'm contending with something I hate
No matter what I've tried to do
I can't get rid of this blasted flu

I've aching bones, a pounding head
I'd rather just stay in bed
My ears are plugged, can't hear a thing
Even when the telephone rings

How many boxes of tissues I've used?
Countless, my poor nostrils are abused
And I blow and blow but all for naught
Because I've an endless supply of snot.

Good luck with that stuff. I haven't had the seasonal vaccine, but I did take the swine vaccine. Our flu season ends here soon. Hope that you're feeling better quickly.

And yet another humor blogger succumbs to the flu. So much for laughter being the best medicine.

Dang! What happened to us?

Are we living in The Matrix?

Don: I had the H1N1 shot. Guess it's my own fault I didn't get the flu shot. (blows nose) Blah.

Whitey: Well, I'm sure not laughing. Hope I didn't pass it on to you last week.

Quirks: I didn't realize the flu was contagious over the interwebs. From now on I'll practice safe text.
Me-Me King said…
Oh, noooooooo, you too? Just how much snot can one human manufacture? Keep warm, drink plenty of liquids, blah, blah, blah.

Get well soon!

What's with you guys? Quirky, Me-Me and now you. I'm stayin' the hell away from this place. Nice little poem though. ;) Feel better soon.

Me-Me: A LOT apparently. I thought I had a bloody nose but it's-not.

AmyLK: Thanks, I'm trying.

Caught the nasty flu virus from having visited Mad Margo, didn't ya!?! I hope now that I've visited you, I don't catch it too!

Cheers man, I hope you get better soon!

Skye: Thanks. I hope so too.

Hoping you feel better soon. So far, I've managed to avoid the evil flu but I think it's still lurking around dark corners, waiting to pounce.
nonamedufus said…
Kelly: Oh, it's out there!

I've been down for the count myself. I got the H1N1 and the regular flu shots so I can't imagine what I'd be feeling like without them.

Hope you're up and about soon!

CL: Wow, you had both shots and it still took you down? That's a pretty strong virus! Glad you're on the road to recovery.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
